PROVINCIAL COUNCILS TO EXPAND SERVICES

6/19/2013
Provincial councils will soon be providing assistance to all ethnic groups in the 14 provinces.

Ministry of Itaukei Affairs permanent secretary, Savenaca Kaunisela said previously all provinces that were governed by provincial councils were merely for the iTaukei community.

“All provincial councils will soon be servicing all ethnic groups and assistance would be provided to them through the Roko Tui’s ,” Mr Kaunisela said.

“We intend to deal with all ethnic groups from one office within the provincial council vicinity.”

Mr Kaunisela added that all ethnic groups will be able to raise their concerns at the provincial council offices.

“The provincial councils will then redirect their queries to the government ministry responsible to deal with issues that the community may have,” Mr Kaunisela said.

He said the Ministry of iTaukei Affairs, in emphasizing service delivery, is working on creating a closer working relationship with all members of the community.

“Regardless of whether you are iTaukei or belong to any other ethnic group, the need to be provided with the correct information is important,” Mr Kaunisela said.

The permanent secretary for iTaukei Affairs was speaking at the launch of the Public Service Day which is part of government’s efforts to improve service delivery.
